Spurs keep tabs on Saints goalkeeper

Tottenham Hotspur are keeping tabs on Southampton keeper Alex McCarthy this summer as they look to bolster their options between the sticks ahead of next season, as reported by The Mirror,

McCarthy, 28, has attracted a host of admiring glances after his impressive end to the season as he ousted Fraser Forster as the Saints’ No.1 and helped Southampton stay up after a late surge saw them avoid relegation.

Those performances have put McCarthy on Mauricio Pochettino’s radar as Michel Vorm – the club’s current No.2 – is set to be out of contract this summer, with the Dutchman also considering his options as he has been a target for several clubs.

McCarthy has one year left on his contract at Southampton and would be strong competition and back up for Spurs captain Hugo Lloris.

Wolves, Arsenal and Liverpool have also been checking on McCarthy who has been called up by England in the past.

Meanwhile, work is progressing at Tottenham’s £850m new stadium at the site of the old White Hart Lane and the club remain confident that it will be open in time for the beginning of the new season.

Despite recent rumours that the new stadium will not open until December, sources within the club have told football.london this week that the timeline has not changed and that all plans are still leading towards the opening of the ground in August.

As well as Spurs home games, the new stadium – which is still without an official name – is due to host an NFL regular season game between the Oakland Raiders and the Seattle Seahawks on October 14.
